Birding and Photography: The Best of Both Worlds on May 19

Don and Lillian Stokes, Hancock residents and best-selling authors, will teach you how to better identify birds and improve your bird photography, no matter what your experience level, during “Birding and Photography: The Best of Both Worlds” on Sunday, May 19 from 3 to 4:30 pm at the Harris Center.   This lively and informative talk, illustrated with Lillian’s bird photos, will be followed by a book signing of their newest pair of books, The New Stokes Field Guide to Birds: Eastern Region and Western Region.

The Stokes have been prolific writers and award-winning educators for over 30 years.  The Stokes Field Guide To The Birds of North America is the most complete photographic guide to birds ever published and contains over 3,400 stunning photos, many taken by Lillian.  Don and Lillian were also the creators, producers, and hosts of the PBS television series Stokes Birds at Home, which was seen by 40 million viewers.
